Item Description

An old German classic and certainly one of the most sought-after pseudomorphs from any worldwide locale - galena pseudomorphs after pyromorphite from Bad Ems. These generally date to before 1900. A striking nest of sharp tapered spindles richly and attractively covers the matrix on this fine old-timer. The crystals are up to 1.4 cm and the piece is in great shape overall. Ex Howard Belsky. Valued at $1250-1500.
